The Big Idea: Chelsea Glamour crossed with Exposed Urban Grit.
The brief was to create a relaxed ‘New York’ style restaurant whilst always referring back to the history and architecture of the 17th Century building. The building was pared back to its existing structure to expose its original, raw characteristics and unique charm.
Finch Interiors were responsible for all of the interior design at 'Goat' Chelsea‘, consisting of 3 floors and 4 offers. On the ground floor is a relaxed restaurant with lower ground private dining area. Up on first floor is a stylish cocktail bar and hidden away from view is ‘The Chelsea Prayer Room’, a ‘speakeasy’ bar that is tricky to find. The 'Big Idea' for the overall space was to make sure that all 3 floors linked together and are clearly visible as you enter. By opening up a void around the main stairs the views up and down are generous and invite you to explore further. The aesthetic for the 3 floors is slightly different on each level for that all important 'change of pace' but there is an overall theme of vintage/industrial with touches of that all important ‘chelsea’ glamour.
